YOUNG MAN ! !
YOUNG WOMAN !!
IF YOU WOULD BECOME SUCCESSFUL
GET A BUSINESS EDUCATION
You have a job, no doubt, but are you satisfied in your pres
ent position? Have you the training that will enable you to
command a higher place in the commercial world? Or, are you
Juet drifting along at a small salary with no prospects of a
better job? Do you fully realize that you are in a “rut”—Chat
you are not progressing as you should? Are you going to wait''
until stern necessity and old age have overtaken you before you
begin to realize the value of an education?
Cold facts prove Chat the only way for an honest man to get
more money is to earn it. You. can earn more only by doing
more work, or better work—or both. It isn’t your employer who
fixes the amount in your pay envelope—it is yourself. You fix
it by your earnestness, your faithfulness, your ability, and—
most of all—by your training.
The up-to-date business school offers greater opportunities
for quick and permanent results, with rapid promotion Just ahead
than any other institution of learning. Of course the majority
of business school graduates elect to follow a business career,
but many eminent lawyers. Judges, statesmen and others promi
nent in professional or political life have found that a business
education was the potent means by which they lifted themselves
toAhelr present plane.
We have helped many young people; planned for them and
better still, taught them to plan for themselves to get the most
out of life. We know what we can do. Just as you will know
what you can do when you are fully trainned to use the powers
that you possess.
The RANBOMERIAN BUSINESS SCHOOL can train you to
become an expert bookkeeper, Accountant, Stenographer, Private
Secretary or Commercial Teacher. We issue Life Scholarships
and they are good in both day and night classes.
Do you fully appreciate what a business course in a RAN
SOMERIAN BUSINESS SCHOOL means to a young man or
woman? It means this: The chance of obtaining a position is
greater with our graduates, because they have the assistance
and co-operation of the entire circuit of RANSOMERIAN
BUSINESS SCHOOLS—one of the largest school organisations
in the United States. The home office of the schools is at Kan
sas City, with branch schools at Centerville, la., Boone, la.,
Cherokee, la.. Perry, la., and Atlantic, la., and RANROMERTAN
graduates are located in every state in the union A RAN
SOMERIAN scholarship is good in any RANSOMERIAN BUSI

after that date.
